GET WALK READY THIS MONTH!

The Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is coming up soon, and we want to help you Get Walk Ready for it!

That’s why we’ll be sharing some great tips this month to push your fundraising over the finish line or even achieve Ambassador status, plus offering great prizes and flash challenges along the way.

So let’s get started!

Here is your first fundraising tip courtesy of your Walker Coach, Sasha:

“Take the amount that you have left to fundraise and divide it by the number of days until OneWalk. That’s how much you have to raise each day to reach your minimum fundraising goal.

Share this number with your friends and family in an email or on social media and ask them to donate that amount. Sometimes an unusual dollar amount (‘I need $34.97 every day for the next four weeks!’) is just catchy enough to inspire someone to donate.”

Walk To Win Presented By CIBC

WALK FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN PRESENTED BY CIBC!

With the Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ only a few months away, CIBC wants to help you kick start your fundraising into overdrive!

Between Monday, June 11, and Canada Day, July 1, CIBC is giving you the chance to win one of 25 individual $200 matching fundraising gifts*! Simply raise $200 or more and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win a $200 fundraising boost.

As a proud Founding Partner, CIBC is committed to supporting organizations that help patients and their loved ones through the cancer journey. For CIBC team members, giving back is personal, and they continue to support causes they care about like OneWalk by rallying around the common goal of helping people and communities thrive. Now they want to help you to reach your personal fundraising goals.

Use this tip from CIBC employee Charlena Gaulin to help get your fundraising in motion:

“The OneWalk to Conquer Cancer is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. The first step to kicking off your fundraising is to directly reach out to your network through email. Explain why the cause is so important to you. Everyone has their own story and reason and this adds a more personal touch. From there, post on your social media pages, reach out to your clubs, host an event to learn more. You’d be surprised at how many people you can engage.”

Any Walker who raises $200 between now and July 1 will also get a OneWalk Pop Socket for their phone, which will be helpful when taking pictures of those special moments on event.

The Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is thrilled to announce the Team Up Challenge, which will run from Sunday, February 4—World Cancer Day—through Friday, March 16!

OneWalk’s Team Up Challenge is your chance to be part of the annual global event of World Cancer Day, which reminds each of us that cancer is no match against our conviction to conquer it.

WHAT IS THE TEAM UP CHALLENGE?

The Team Up Challenge is an incredible opportunity for our powerful OneWalk community to amplify its impact to conquer cancer through teamwork and win great prizes for it!

Here’s how it works:

  • Teams that add five or more Walkers between Sunday, February 4, and Friday, March 16, will have a kilometre of the OneWalk route dedicated to them.
  • Any team that earns a kilometre will also be entered into a draw to win one of five team spots for OneWalk’s VIP hospitality tent on event.
  • The top five teams to add the most Walkers between Sunday, February 4, and Friday, March 16, through spot fulfillment and/or recruitment will automatically win access to OneWalk’s VIP tent.

HOW CAN YOUR TEAM WIN THE TEAM UP CHALLENGE?

  • Be one of the top five teams to add the most Walkers by spot fulfillment and/or recruitment and win automatic access to the VIP tent.
  • Be a team that adds five or more Walkers to receive an entry to win one of five extra spots in the VIP tent. For every five Walkers you add, your team receives one entry. Plus, you’ll get a kilometre of the OneWalk route dedicated to your team!

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES FOR WINNING THE TEAM UP CHALLENGE?

The five teams that add the most newly registered Walkers—individuals who register from February 4 through March 16—and the five teams that win the draw receive:

  • Official welcome signage recognizing your team on event.
  • Team access to the Team Up Challenge VIP hospitality tent, including lounge, private bartender and snack privileges.
  • BONUS: A kilometre of the OneWalk route dedicated to your team with official signage when you add five or more registered Walkers.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A TEAM?

  • A built-in support system as you join the movement that is OneWalk!
  • The power of training partners! Teams often organize training walks. Training partners can also provide training motivation and encouragement.
  • Fundraising support! Teams frequently coordinate and host fundraising events. Training partners can offer fundraising tips, too.
  • The opportunity to discover and strengthen lifelong friendships!
  • Strength in numbers! More Walkers mean more dollars raised for The Princess Margaret.

And don’t forget that if your team has pre-purchased spots, filling them between February 4 and March 16 counts towards the Team Up Challenge. Have questions or want more information? Call a OneWalk Coach today at 416.815.9255.

Can you feel that chill in the air? Snow is beginning to fall everywhere… And it’s the season to show just how much you care!

Tuesday, November 28, is #GivingTuesdayCA, as well as the kickoff day for OneWalk’s Operation: Holly Jolly! This festive contest is a chance for Walkers to boost both their fundraising tallies and invite others to Walk with them through fun donation and referral challenges, and here’s how can you get in on all this holiday cheer…

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

Over the next few weeks, we are issuing out a challenge to all Walkers to complete four tasks, and with each task you fulfill, a mystery holiday badge will be unlocked on your Personal Page. Carry out all four challenges—in any order—between now and Wednesday, December 20, at 11:59 p.m., and you will successfully complete Operation: Holly Jolly!

And for your hard work, holly jolly rewards will be had! Each completed task will also give you one entry into our holiday basket giveaway. Should you be the lucky winner of Operation: Holly Jolly, you will receive a gift basket filled with delicious gourmet items courtesy of Vincenzo’s.

HOLLY JOLLY TASKS

  1. Raise $150. OneWalk is just nine short months away! While you may have all things holidays on your mind right now, it’s also the perfect time to kick-start your event fundraising. How to easily raise that amount? Just ask your friends or family members to donate to your OneWalk in lieu of a holiday gift. Come New Year, you could already be well on your way to achieving or surpassing your goal!
  2. Update your Personal Page. Sharing why you joined OneWalk is a way to invest others in your quest to conquer cancer in our lifetime and increase your fundraising tally. During the holidays, you can also use your Personal Page to thank the people in your life for the donations they’ve given. Already have a customized Personal Page? Just upload a holiday-themed picture to fulfill this task!
  3. Make a self-donation. Who said that holiday gifts have to come from other people? By self-donating to your OneWalk, you will show everyone you know just how committed you are to our cause and incentivize them to follow your lead. Plus, a donation to yourself is really the gift that keeps on giving, as every little bit supports research and treatment at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
  4. Refer a friend. The holidays often mean time spent with loved ones, but what about the rest of the year? OneWalk offers the perfect chance to ask that co-worker, cousin, childhood friend or other favourite person to be at your side in September. Not only will you have opportunities for bonding time as you train, but also you’ll be making amazing memories together during event weekend!

Operation: Holly Jolly is a challenge to both enjoy the holidays and get us closer to our goal to conquer cancer, so join us this December for some seriously festive fun!
